Secret Paws Gifts Received
It took us until a couple of days after Christmas to finally convince Mom to let us open our Secret Paws gifts. We know she wasn't trying to be mean. We know she and Dad were super busy with Fiona and not in a very festive mood.
Let us tell you...it was worth the wait. We've never seen such a treasure trove of goodies all at one time. But before we show you the prezzies, we want to reveal who our Secret Paws gift giver was.
Except for Astrid, who watched from the dining room table, we all got involved in checking out the loot. Even Fiona felt well enough to purrticipate.
We received treats, noms, and lots of toys, including a wand toy with purple feathers and a bird toy that chirps. We also got this Snacky Snowman. We had the treats out of it within seconds. There also was a beautiful green Christmas stocking and cozy blanket (shown here with Mom's gifts: a bracelet, holiday pin and small hinged box with angel cat.) The blue-eyed, white kitty looks just like our angel brofur, Madison, which touched Mom's heart.
We love all our gifts and send special thanks to Samantha and her mom for taking such care in choosing the most wonderful presents.
Secret Paws Gifts Sent
We agreed this year to be matched with a Secret Paws purrticipant located outside the U.S. We were so excited when we were matched with dear New Zealand friends, DashKitten. Mom was late to mail and was certain they wouldn't get their gifts until after Christmas, but we received word that they arrived on Christmas Eve. Mom Marjorie has posted photos of a couple items on their blog. That was nice, as our empty-headed mom only took a photo after she had wrapped everything.
Do you like the wrapping paper Mom had made for us? It matched our Christmas card, which she actually got in the mail today. For those of you who live outside the U.S., we figure you might get your card in time for Valentine's Day. In the next few days, while our dad is watching football, Mom will do her best to get our e-mail cards sent.
We want to thank Truffle, Brûlée and Mom Paula (Sweet Purrfections) for all the hard work they do to set up the Secret Paws gift exchange.
Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
